furlough if the sequester were to take effect. pentagon officials, however, confirm that those furloughs would not begin until april at the earliest and that furloughed employees would be asked to miss one day of work per week for 22 weeks. the reality of sequestration is that it represents a very small portion of overall government spending, no matter how dramatic or how grim the president projects the consequences. fox news chief political correspondent carl cameron has our report. >> these cuts are not smart, not fair. >> six business days and counting to $85 billion in across-the-board federal spending reductions. defense bases in 8 percent cut d other agencies reduce spending five to 6%. as part of the over three and half trillion dollar federal budget for this yearlone the $85 billion sequester cuts amount to a tinylice. only just under two and a half%. government spending is average 20% of annl u.s. economic activity. even after the sequestster cutst will be 22% this year, 10 percent higher than the average for the last seven decades. government spending is still projected to rise

clearly the enemy didn't have. but the second point i think our first of all the pentagon didn't show you any video. that's bad puerto rico. and the percentage of the weapons that were smart weapons and the first gulf war more than anything the iraqis had was remarkably small compared to the impression the pentagon gave in their military briefings where the only showed pictures of smart bombs and missiles and things flying through windows. there was a very tiny percentage of the actions actually expended. so i don't think that this was so much a revolution of military affairs as a vivid demonstration as you pointed out on just how proficient the united states was in waging a war especially against a less proficient adversary but it was a more philosophical way and that is and the ultimate goal of the conflict was a political goal so there for the military planning involves both smart and some weapons and they were designed with a traditional military conclusion which in truth wasn't revolutionary at all which was getting the enemy to do what we wanted. so i can't see the revolutionary
